SmartXide CO2 Laser

The Gold Standard For Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation 

Bellingham, Seattle, and Bellevue SmartXide CO2 Laser at Kucumber Skin Lounge

Take years off of your complexion with the SmartXide CO2 laser system! SmartXide provides dramatic results with far less downtime than traditional CO2 laser platforms. Dull and aging skin cells are precisely “peeled” away from the skin’s surface, visibly fading lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. Meanwhile, collagen production ramps up to restore elasticity. For many patients, the results can rival those of a mini-facelift, all without surgery. Contact our team at Kucumber Skin Lounge to schedule your personal consultation today at our Bellingham, Seattle, or Bellevue, WA, location.

Smarter Technology for Stunning Results

What is SmartXide CO2 Laser?

Traditional ablative lasers rejuvenate the skin by precisely removing the top layer. While this process can produce dramatic results, it comes with discomfort and downtime that not every patient wants. The SmartXide CO2 Laser offers comprehensive skin rejuvenation with less downtime through its “micro-ablative” technology, creating an array of microscopic perforations in the epidermis. SmartXide consistently earns rave reviews from dermatologists, aesthetic specialists, and patients alike due to its highly efficacious skin resurfacing capabilities and its minimally invasive nature. 

The Next Generation of Laser Skin Resurfacing

What are the benefits of SmartXide CO2 Laser?

Since its introduction in 1995, CO2 ablative laser resurfacing has represented the highest standard of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. However, CO2 laser resurfacing traditionally came with a prolonged recovery and aftercare period, making it less desirable for many potential candidates. SmartXide revolutionized the CO2 laser treatment experience by delivering laser energy in a pattern of tiny microzones instead of ablating the skin’s entire surface. This means far less downtime with all the amazing benefits of a traditional CO2 laser platform:

  • Skin resurfacing
  • Pigmentation
  • Scars including acne
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Textural imperfections
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Stretch marks

Precision and Versatility

Your SmartXide CO2 Laser Procedure

Local anesthesia is administered for your comfort before starting the SmartXide CO2 laser treatment. Depending on the treatment area, most sessions last from 30 minutes to an hour. As the laser is applied, you may feel a sensation of warmth or tingling. The laser precisely penetrates the skin layers, stimulating the body's natural healing response. When this process is complete, your Kucumber Skin Lounge specialist will review aftercare instructions with you to ensure a smooth recovery process.

Nurturing Care for Renewed Confidence

SmartXide CO2 Laser Recovery and Aftercare

While not as lengthy as the recovery following a traditional CO2 laser treatment, the recovery period after your SmartXide treatment requires mindful aftercare to ensure good healing. Residual swelling and redness typically last around five days. Your provider will advise you on gentle cleansing techniques and recommend an occlusive moisturizer to keep your skin protected and hydrated as it heals. Stay out of the sun and wear a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. These precautions will minimize side effects and promote an optimal outcome from your CO2 laser treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The SmartXide CO2 laser is suitable for various skin types and tones but may require customization based on individual skin conditions. Your Kucumber Skin Lounge physician will thoroughly assess your skin and learn about your medical history to verify that this treatment can safely and effectively help you meet your cosmetic goals.

Initial improvements start to become noticeable about a week after the procedure as the skin begins to heal and regenerate. However, optimal results may take several months to fully manifest as collagen production increases and skin texture improves.
